CHILD PROTECTION REFORMS TO GO TO PARLIAMENT





CHILD PROTECTION REFORMS TO GO TO PARLIAMENT

Tony Issa MP, Member for Granville today welcomed sweeping reforms to strengthen the child protection system.

“This is part of the NSW Government’s commitment to strengthening the child protection system by giving parents, courts and caseworkers the tools they need to provide a safe environment for at-risk children,” Mr Issa said.

“The NSW Government’s changes put vulnerable children first, while also giving troubled mothers the help they need to turn their lives around.”

Under these new laws there will be:

           increased early intervention services;

           expansion of Parental Responsibility Contracts to support expectant mothers;

           court-issued Parental Capacity Orders; and,

           the streamlining of open adoption – which means adopted children can maintain a connection with their biological parents.

“The new laws will be underpinned by an additional funding of at least $35 million from the NSW Government to assist with the roll-out of the reforms,” Mr Issa added.

Minister for Family and Community Services, Pru Goward introduced the new legislation into NSW Parliament last week.

More information about the sweeping reforms to child protection can be found on the NSW Family and Community Services website.
